Staff and residents enjoyed a trip to Farndon Fields farm shop…

Organising Outings is extremely important to us and of course, our resident’s happiness and it’s important we keep everyone active and engaged with the outside world. We organise both group and individual activities; such as outings to Althorpe House for lunch, Woburn Abbey to see the wildlife and Rushton Hall for a look around the gardens and their stately home.


Staff and residents day out at Foxton Locks.We also organise regular functions in support of local and national charities and invite the local community and villagers to join us as residents enjoy meeting new people at our regular coffee mornings and garden events.



Residents and staff enjoying a summer drink at the local Swan Inn, just a stones throw away.




Regular BBqs and garden events take place during the spring and summer.




In-house Activities:

We also run regular in-house classes such as baking, arts and crafts and flower arranging. Residents can take part in card games, colouring crafts and participate in bingo or bowling.


Plant potting and decorating a Brookside

Gardening can prove very therapeutic. Residents have recently enjoyed trips to East Farndon farm shop and also planting their own plants in Brookside gardens and decorating plant pots during arts and crafts.


Flower arranging and some arts and crafts with the ladies at Brookside.



And Cake decorating triggered some wonderful child hood memories.
Sing A Long with Ann Marie at Brookside:

Anne Marie – ‘Dusty and Friends’ brings a magical tribute to Brookside. Great voices of the 50s and 60s come to Brookside, performed by vocalist Ann Marie.

Weekly Visits from Sandra Potter:

Keeping our residents actively engaged is extremely important for their wellbeing. Sandra Potter comes to Brookside every Tuesday and organises the bowling and hosts the quiz days with the residents.

Every Xmas Santa comes to visit:

The residents and care team at Brookside enjoyed a Christmas Party in 2017:

Santa Claus was a big surprise at the start of the day as he turned up to hand out presents to each of the residents. Residents opened their gifts and showed each other what they had received. It was great to watch them interacting with each other and it provided plenty of conversation. Who was the man behind the beard?

The party was completed with an afternoon of festive decorating, mince pies and mulled wine.

I would like to thank all the staff for their wonderful care and kindness that they have shown to my mother (Kate C) during her time at Brookside. Living in Australia so far from her it was a comfort to know how well she was being cared for. I hope to get the opportunity to pop in and say thankyou in person in the next week or two.
